Hello beautiful people!
There are TWO television shows that trump all in my life … Friends and Stranger Things. With season three being OFFICIALLY released, I decided to search through the Internet in the hopes of finding a Stranger Things tag … and I OBVIOUSLY found one.
This tag SHOULDN’T really spoil too much content but it makes way more sense if you’ve watched the show — there’s a season one and season two tag, but I’m doing season one since … why not?

|| The opening sequence of Stranger Things is amazing and really grabs your attention. Name a book that grabbed your attention from the first page ||
Omens (Book One) by Kelley Armstrong — As always, Armstrong has a knack for making readers devour her books in one go. But the BEST thing about her novels (especially the first in a series) is how intense they are, immediately drawing the reader in!
DUNGEONS & DRAGONS!
|| Name a fantasy world you would like to experience yourself ||
Lyra’s World in The Golden Compass (Book One) by Philip Pullman — Other than the scary Gobblers and other menacing individuals, Lyra’s world is breathtakingly beautiful. It’s very similar to ours but more steampunk influences and with other magical beings. Also … I would hope that I somehow got a daemon afterwards … and then I would just stay there forever.
|| When Eleven met Mike, Dustin and Lucas it was a *mostly* perfect team. Name your favourite bookish group of friends ||
Harry, Ron and Hermione in Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling — Are we really that shocked? I think not. When I was a kid, I remember wanting to be a part of their group so badly! Honestly, this trio has it’s ups and downs … to the point of driving me nutty! But in the end, they’re there for one another. And honestly, the shenanigans they get up to can be rather hilarious!
ABC’s & CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
|| Joyce Byers goes mad with grief after Will goes missing. Name your favourite mentally unhinged character ||
Dorian Gray in The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde — He’s slow demise into madness is absolutely thrilling! The slow decay of the writing and intricate word use reflects his own undoing and it’s such a brilliant concept. From a flirtatious young man to driving himself mad, Dorian’s character evolution is one to see.
THE UPSIDE DOWN
|| Name a book that was the opposite of what you expected ||
Lola and the Boy Next Door (Book Two) by Stephanie Perkins — After reading book one, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this one. I did like Anna and the French Kiss, but I had a lot of issues with it as well. But the sequel stepped up its game, making me SO happy I decided to give it a go.
|| Dr. Brenner likes to get freaky with humanity. Name the freakiest dystopian government you can think of ||
The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins — Seriously, they have children battle it out and kill one another as a “lesson” and TOTALLY for entertainment. It’s messed up. I remember reading this and thinking how utterly repulsive this is … I actually had to take breaks reading it because it freaked me out.
|| Name a scary bookish creature that you would not want to come through your walls ||
The Dementors in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book Three) by J.K. Rowling — The first time I read this book, I was absolutely freaked when the dementors were introduced. A creature that is literally the epiphany of fear? Yea … I’m good with not seeing this creature.
|| Name a book that left you wanting more ||
If I’m Being Honest by Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka — This book is beautiful and ends wonderfully, but I just wanted more! I loved the stories and the characters so much that I wasn’t ready to let go of them at the end. I really hope they make a guess appearance in the new books that are supposed to release in 2020!
I don’t know who watches Stranger Things, so I’m not going to tag people in specific. But if you want to, please go for it and let me know so I can see your answers!
